South African Airways operations unaffected by NUMSA march

Published on : Wednesday, August 9, 2017

South-African-AirwaysSouth African Airways’ (SAA) operations have been unaffected by today’s march by members of NUMSA at its technical facilities, with no flight delays.

The airline implemented its contingency plan following receipt of notification that South African Cabin Crew Association (SACCA) and NUMSA advised that both unions intend to march and hand over memorandums to SAA and SAAT.

SAA will keep customers informed on an ongoing basis should any further activities today affect operations.

It remains unclear why SACCA and NUMSA have not resorted to using the provisions of the SAA Bargaining Forum Agreement (SAABF) which provides for the appropriate platform to address demands by any party to the agreement.

To date SAA is unaware of SACCA / NUMSA’s demands being tabled at the appropriate structure in terms of the SAABF. The airline is considering its options in an effort to ensure business continuity and cannot rule out an option to interdict the unions should the need to do so arise.

SAA remains committed and open to continued engagement with union leadership in an effort to speedily resolve any matters of dispute.
